Replica Firearms – Can you tell the difference?


Whether it be in the commission of a crime or as part of a foolish prank, carrying a replica firearm in a public place causes undue anxiety and trauma to innocent bystanders.

It is an offence under the Weapons Act to carry a replica firearm in a public place, with a maximum penalty of $4400 fine and or six months imprisonment.

If the replica firearm is used to cause fear within the public place, then a 4 year term of imprisonment can be imposed.
